Secret In The Dirt
The US Open heads to Erin, Wisconsin and opened for play in 2006 after two years of construction. The course was the vision of Robert "Bob" Lang who wanted to bring the US Open to the area. The course was designed by Dr Michael John Hurdzan and his business partner Dana Fry, and Ron Whitten.
With advice from the USGA lots of changes were made to the original design but during that time the project ran into financial difficulty and was purchased by Andrew Ziegler in 2009 but he kept the vision of holding the US Open.
From the tips the course weighs in at a staggering 7800-yards and has already held the 2008 US Womens Amateur Public Links and the 2011 US Amateur championship.
Erin Hill uses the natural terrain of the area and with the hard fescue fairways the course will play shorter than the stated yardage due to the hard running fairways and with most of the greens being elevated this will make precision into each pin position a premium, as the run-off areas will leave players with a tricky up and down to save par.
The weather will be a major factor during the tournament if it is hot with minimum wind the players will score well, but with the open heathland type nature of the course with winds whipping across the course you will see a three to four club difference in shots and holding those greens will become more treacherous. Like all US Open course the fescue will deep and will put pressure not just on hitting the fairway but on every part of the players golf game.

My tips to win:
Defending champion Dustin Johnson 8/1 with BetFred comes into this week after missing the cut at the Memorial Tournament, but I feel that may just be a blip on what is turning out to be a fantastic year for the South Carolinian. Dustin has three wins, a runner-up and has only been outside the Top 13 twice in ten starts and he will be the man to beat this week.
This will be Jon Rahm 22/1 SportingBet second US Open and his Top 25 finish last year should put the Spaniard in good stead and with a years experience on tour since he teed it up at Oakmont Country Club has seen him win his first PGA Tour win, have three runners-up and four Top 5s. Like Johnson Jon comes into this week after a missed cut at the Memorial Tournament, but again after a couple of weeks rest and practice I expect him to be right in the thick of it come Sunday.
It will depend on Justin Roses 28/1 BetFred back rehabilitation treatments if he will be at 100% as he tees it up Erin Hills this week, I am sure he has put in the practice work that he has needed to, but nothing compares to playing competitive golf. Justin was a putt away from winning his second major championship at this years Masters but a terrible tee shot in the play-off put paid to that. The US Open is all about plotting your way around the course and not pushing to hard, more than any other player Rose is capable of that.
My each-way tips:
Justin Thomas 33/1 with PaddyPower started like a bullet out of a gun winning three times from his first six starts on the wraparound tour. There has been three missed cuts since his last win but that was always going to happen, but Justin has slowly come back into contention with two Top 5 from his last three starts and I think these are good odds for the Kentuckian.
I dont think just missing out on making a play-off at the weekend will do Charl Schwartzel 66/1 Bet365 any harm, in fact I think it could work as a positive for the South African. Charl is already a major winner taking the green jacket in 2011 and he made a great charge at another this year with two final rounds of 68 that see him take third place. Schwartzel has only been outside the Top 25 once in the US Open since 2013 and has a couple of Top 10s since he first teed it up in the US Open in 2006.
My outside tips:
There are some great outside bets this week my first pick is Jason Dufner 80/1 188Bet who won recently and has only been outside the Top 20 at the US Open once since 2012 and has three Top 10s in that run. Another player that I have tipped several times this year and seems to have a new lease of life is Pat Perez 200/1 32Red. Last up is Jim Furyk 300/1 32Red this are incredible odds for someone who has won the US Open and has three runners-up one of which was last year and although he has missed six missed cuts on the spin coming into this week his record in this event cant be dismissed.
As always good luck
